2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light amber, clear; floral hop aroma characteristic of Badger beers; well-carbonated, perhaps too fizzy; spice on the tongue, hops to the fore as expected; slight metallic tinge which spoils it; more floral hops and a touch of grapefruit in the bitter finish; no more than ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Feb 09, drank May 08.
Poured into a pint sleeve glass it was a clear, bright pale golden colour with a good white head that stayed for the whole drink.
The aroma was of hops (the label claimed it was thrice hopped), floral with a citrus fruits tang.
The taste was fairly hoppy, not by US standards, but heavy for the UK. Dry and a little bitter overal.
The dryness gave way to a metallic feel in the mouth and aftertaste, this didn’t help the tasting at all.
Bit to harsh for me, the and hops and bitterness didn’t seem to blend together enough and the aforementioned metallic aftertaste seemed to highlight that fact. I can understand a hop fan going for it, but not me again.
